I don’t know what this means for the future of the Steelers:
Bill Cowher resigned as the Pittsburgh Steelers’ coach Friday, stepping aside to spend more time with his family one year after winning the Super Bowl title he had chased since 1992.
The 49-year-old Cowher left with one year left on his contract following an 8-8 season that was a disappointment, especially after last season: The Steelers became the first team to win three playoff games on the road and then the Super Bowl as a sixth-seeded AFC team.
“History will look back on Bill Cowher as one of the great coaches of all time,” Steelers chairman Dan Rooney said.
The Steelers will begin a coaching search immediately to replace the departing Cowher, who called Rooney on Thursday to inform him of his decision.
I liked the guy, and he will be missed.
